Modern Foreign Language Storybirds
for Teachers and Learners


And welcome to the Wikispace where you can share and enjoy stories written by and for teachers and learners of French, German, Spanish and Italian.
At the last count, we had 86 Storybird creations, contributed by 30 different authors in 4 different languages.
Many of you will have come across this wiki via Twitter, where Storybird has been a sensation. However, as everyone who tries to create a Storybird in any language but English will have discovered, we cannot make our stories public so we can easily share with fellow enthusiasts.
Mark Ury, one of the founders of has told us he is well aware of our frustration and sympathises. However, they are still a small organisation and simply do not have the resources to moderate Stories written in languages other than English.
Feeling frustrated and knowing how fun, inspiring and useful I find others' Storybird creations, I set up ‘MFL-Storybirds’ to overcome the problem. The people at Storybird are working on a solution and in the meantime have given their blessing to this Wiki.
